Don’t count Michael Sam out just yet. The first openly gay football player ever to be selected in the NFL draft may be getting a second chance with the Dallas Cowboys after he was cut from the St. Louis Rams over the weekend. Per ESPN:

The Cowboys plan to bring Michael Sam to Dallas for a physical Wednesday, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

If all goes well, Sam will be a Cowboy, signed to the team’s practice squad, the source said.

It’s not a done deal, but this sounds like a much better invitation for Sam than his alternative, offered up rather dubiously by the WWE on Monday
